Date of Passing: May 27, 2020Offer Condolences or Memory
Cheryl was predeceased by her parents, Ruth and William Klaprat; and her mother and father-in-law, Peggy and Terry Algeo.
Cheryl is survived by her loving husband of 44 years, Chris Algeo; and by her children, Carley and Tyler (Clare); grandchildren, Bodhi and Moses, and her dog Kaydee. Also left to mourn her passing are her sisters, Dorthy (Henry), Marilyn (Jack); and brother Russell; and sisters-in-law, Peggy (Don), Jessie (Norm); and brother-in-law Bill (Wendy), and many dear nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
Cheryl was born on October 3, 1954 in Whitemouth, MB and grew up on the family farm in Seven Sisters. After completing high school in Pinawa, she attended the University of Manitoba where she graduated with a Bachelor of Physical Education degree in 1975. Cheryl went on to teach in the Winnipeg School Division. She was a wonderful teacher and beloved by her many students who continued to seek her out years after she retired from teaching. In 1976 Cheryl married the love of her life, Chris Algeo. Together they raised two children and started and ran their own business, JBA Construction.
Cheryl was a kind and gentle soul with the biggest heart and the most beautiful smile. She was devoted to her family and Carley and Tyler were her pride and joy. She was a loyal and supportive friend and was always ready to lend a helping hand. Cheryl loved outdoor activities like camping, hiking, fishing and especially gardening. She loved to travel with Chris and enjoyed the many road trips they took and places they visited over the years. But what she loved most was to be with her family at their home on the Bow River. Cheryl's passing has left a huge void in our lives.
In accordance with Cheryl's wishes, cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will be held at 10:00 a.m. on October 16, 2020, at the Bowness Community Centre Calgary.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Cheryl's memory may be made to Bowness Historical Society, #414, 8604 - 48 Ave. NW, Calgary, Alberta T3B 5E6.

I was saddened to learn of Cheryl's passing. We attended high school in Pinawa, MB (Dorothy and I were in the same grade). Our daughter attended Victor Wyatt School and Cheryl was her Teacher in Greade 2. My condolences to the Family. On another note, my father, Walter Litvinsky, was a very good friend of Terry and Peggy Algeo. I remember when Mr. Algeo took my dad, brother and myself for a ride in his plane at the St. Andrews Airport. - Posted by: Merle Fund (nee Litvinsky) (Friend) on: Jun 17, 2020

Cheryl and I worked together early in our teaching careers. The staff at Wyatt School was you, and boy we knew how to make and have fun. Cheryl was a fantastic gym teacher. She led by example, and the students loved her. We also played slo pitch together, and went on numerous camping trips. She was always super prepared, had the latest gizmos and gadgets to make the trips more fun. I have many fond memories of our good times, both at work and play. Rest In Peace, Cheryl. - Posted by: Marilyn and Eugene (Friend) on: Jun 13, 2020
